Stayed for one night, very nice traditional dinner, good wine, room was small, but clean. Rates was very reasonable. Hiking trails on the estate was very scenic and rich history. Will definitely recommend stay at the estate.

Dear Quintin Thank you for taking the time to write your complimentary review. As you might have found out, the guesthouse originally was a coach house and stables - hence the various sized rooms. Thanking you for recommending us and we hope you will visit us again soon. Sincerely Carol More

We spent two nights in this guest house - very comfortable room and we loved the underfloor heating in our bedroom!! A lot of attention had been paid to items available in the room and bathroom.

Loved our two nights here! A little off the beaten track but not too far. Lovely grounds, good hosts, good wine, beautiful grounds. Our room with ensuite was charming. Has comfortable and spacious guest lounge with open fire, nice for relaxing after a day out.

I booked a room at Knorhoek guesthouse for the charm of staying in a winery. Wine plantations arent visible though from any of the easily accessible areas. The room was very small and old. Breakfast was okayish, did have sufficient options. Service was average too. We did not do wine tasting here.

Dear DM Thank you for you honest review. I get the impression that you were expecting the type of wineries advertised in glossy magazines. Knorhoek dates back to 1827 and earlier and the guesthouse is as advertised on our website, renovated stables. Buildings in earlier times, were placed near water sources, and protected from the devastating East wind. The vineyards... More

This wine estate has some lovely rooms and cottages to stay. We were lucky to have a well appointed cottage, so ample space for us. The only fly in the ointment was the lighting in the bathrooms, very inadequate! But everything else was tiptop.
